Camp Tamarancho:

Marin Council's Local Campground

Fall Camp and Tiger Expedition + Spring Family Fiesta

The fall campout and Tiger Weekend are an excellent time for scouts new to Pack 33 to start out the Pack year with a fun and organized outdoor experience.  Activities including Archery, BB Gun marksmanship, Nature Hikes, and Crafts are done at various stations during the day, followed by a group campfire including skits and songs in the campfire bowl as the sun goes down in the evening.  Each Scout should have a parent or guardian with them throughout this event. This is a great chance to get to know other Pack families, and see some of what Scouting has to offer. 

In the Spring, Marin Council offers a family camp with many of the same great activities on offer for the scouts, but this time the grounds are open to camping for the whole family.  Mark you calendars in advance and bring the whole crew up for the weekend.  If you need tips for what to pack, see our Pack 33 packing guide.  

 

Make sure the check your email for the latest information from Marin Council, who organizes and hosts this event. Please be sure to register in advance, and bring a completed medical release form for each child and adult camper for presentation at check in.

Cub Scout Day Camp

During the summer months, Marin Council offers a Cub Scout Day Camp on a weekly basis. Boys are grouped into dens of 6-9 Scouts led by a staff Boy Scout or Venturer. In addition to usual camp activities in the fall and spring, activities may include watersports such as swimming and canoeing, kite making, and special crafts. This is a great way for your Scout to earn the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity award, which allows a scout to wear a special patch on their uniform's right front pocket flap. Bus service from Mill Valley is available, check the Marin Council website for details which are usually posted in late Winter or early Spring.

Local flora and fauna

There is lots of local wildlife that you may sometimes see in and around camp, including deer, bobcat, raccoons, and local birds. Please keep this in mind when storing food. Rattlesnakes can occasionally be found on local trails and roads, please remind Scouts and other family members to use caution when hiking. Ticks, bees, and yellow-jackets also are in the area, so take appropriate precaution.  Learn about poison oak, also found in the area, on one of the guided nature hikes offered at camp. Camp policy does not allow dogs or other pets on site.
